Resource: Digital Curation LinkedIn Group Launched

In a rapidly changing technological environment, the difficult task of ensuring effective long-term access to digital information is increasingly important. This group discusses digital curation, which the Digital Curation Centre defines as “maintaining, preserving and adding value to digital research data throughout its lifecycle.” The DCC’s digital curation lifecycle model includes these steps: conceptualise, create, access and use, appraise and select, dispose, ingest, preservation action, reappraise, store, access and reuse, and transform.
